Spring is when we really start getting excited about the NFL starting back up. Rosters are coming together with free agency and the draft in the books. Teams also learn of their schedule and who they will play first.

Week 1 NFL Vegas Game Lines:  Point Spreads & Betting Totals

That’s what we are focusing on here. The Week 1 NFL matchups and the betting odds for those games.

Week 1 Schedule Breakdown

You will find a full schedule for the opening week of this season below and there’s some great matchups. It all officially starts with the Patriots making their first title defense at home on Thursday Night Football. They will go up against one of their biggest threats in the AFC in the Chiefs.

There’s two games on Sunday that are sure to get a lot of attention. First it will be an afternoon showdown in Green Bay between the Packers and Seahawks. Then it’s the night cap on NBC with the Cowboys hosting the Giants in a huge NFC East rivalry.

Not to mention we get our annual double-dip on Monday Night Football. Lot to like in both games. First you have Adrian Peterson playing his first game with New Orleans against the only other franchise he’s played for. Then you have the first official game of the new Los Angeles Chargers against the Broncos.

Early Money Recap

I’ve included the opening lines on the spread and total for all 16 games, as well as the current numbers. Let’s you see where the early money is going.

As of right now, there’s been 6 games that have moved off the opening number. Only two of those are more than a 1/2-point and it’s the two early prime time games. The Chiefs have been bet down from +8 to +7 and the Giants from +6 to +5.

You will also see that a number of the games have seen some early action on the total. Most of those in favor of the under.
